I have been trying so hard for weeks to see 155. 155 was my next mini goal, as well as my 70 lbs lost mark.
Earlier this week I told my weight loss buddy that I thought I was going to weigh 156 forever. With the way the scale had been I thought I was going to have to fight for every ounce.
Then I woke up this morning and saw 154.4 lol Turns out I skipped over 155 all together! I'm so excited I could cry!
71 lbs down, 19 to go. Ack I'm in the teens!
Ok I promise not to bore you ladies again with scale pictures until I hit my next mini goal.

 Wow!  That is awesome!  Good for you......I'm one of those that weighs EVERY day, and record every little drop down to a tenth of a pound.  I love watching that scale go down!

I weigh daily as well. I know they say it is not a good habit. But I look at it realistically..plus it has helped me learn a lot about my body and how different foods/drink/exercises effect it.
I enjoy seeing it go down as well, but I had been bouncing around in 156 for 2-3 weeks. Lol

WOOHOOOOO!  So happy for you :)

I'm really really hoping to hit my 70 mark next time I step on the scale too.  Last I checked I had 2 lbs to go. I also feel like I'm fighting for every ounce!

 Same here.  If it goes up-- I look at all the foods I ate over that time period.  Sometimes, I find that even though it's a healthy food, it causes me to gain.  So, I remove that food item and see the scale going back down.  It's motivation for me.  I started this journey 2 years ago this month.  I'm not too terribly far from my goal weight.  But, more to the point, I want to stay healthy.  Keep going!  Can't wait to follow your progress!
